Washer/Dryer Pedestal

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This idea came from a trip to a home center to buy one of those pedestal drawer units that go beneath front-loading washers and dryers. They cost about $250+ for each machine, and they’re little more than poorly designed junk! I knew I could do better! This one is designed for both machines. It has a lot more drawer space than the commercial versions, it’s on wheels so it can be moved, and it was carefully engineered to support the tremendous weight on top for years and years to come. Best of all, it’ll cost you just a fraction of price of the store bought units!

This is a great project for a beginner because it requires only a circular saw and utilizes materials you can buy in a home center.

This basic plan includes a dimensioned cut list and simple drawings so you can see how it goes together. I recommend you also watch the free videos below for additional tips.

  • Basic PDF Plans (dimensions, cut list and basic assembly drawings)
  • Dimensions: Inches
  • Tools required: Circular saw, drill, router

You will NOT receive a paper plan. You will be sent a link to download a digital PDF document that is compatible with most computers and digital devices. You may print it yourself or take it to a printing service. We do not provide 3D Sketchup models or CNC G-code.

Horizontal Router

This horizontal router has a few unique twists that make all the difference, like a tilting table, a micro adjustable router lift, a sliding table and much more. The machine is great for making raised panel doors, cutting miters and bevels, making splined miter joints for boxes, locking miter joints, half lap joints, rabbets, tenons... the list goes on and on. Plus it has excellent dust collection, and the tilting table makes it possible to cut unique, one of a kind profiles with ordinary router bits!

Table Saw Sliding Crosscut Table

The Europeans have had a secret for years- their saws have sliding tops for easy and accurate crosscuts! We can buy attachments for our saws in the US, but they are EXPENSIVE. So why not make your own? This one mounts to the side of your contractor or cabinet saw (for smaller saws, use with the TS Workstation) and includes an adjustable miter fence, even a storage drawer. Great for working with plywood panels!

Spring Clamps (free)

These homemade spring clamps are easy to make, and cost almost nothing (assuming you have some scrap wood and rubber bands laying around.) They're great for light duty clamping, and make an excellent project for kids- just be sure to supervise while they use the band saw or scroll saw. The link below will provide you with patterns for a large and small version.

Jig Saw

This is a great machine for cutting curves and large holes without having to cut from the edge of the work piece like with a band saw. In fact, it can replace a band saw in a budget-minded shop. PLUS, it can cut plastic, metal, even tile! Rockwell calls theirs a Blade-runner, but this one has features that even theirs doesn't have. For one thing, it makes beveled cuts. It has a storage drawer at the bottom, and it can be made from scraps and a cheap  saw.

X-Y Sliding Drill Press Table

This is a drill press table unlike anything you have ever seen before. Despite its compact profile, it is PACKED with features, including two drill bit storage drawers, a quick-release T-style fence, built in dust collection, replaceable inserts and a clever mechanism that allows the table surface to slide forward and back, as well as left to right! When combined with the built in stops, or simple layout lines on a piece of tape, this mechanism can make your drill press do a LOT more! Use it to make rows of holes for shelf pins, etc., all with easy repeatability. You can even put a router bit in the drill press and use the table for milling shallow mortises and inlays. You're bound to find even more uses for this unique table!

Homemade Router Lift

This lift features an improved tracking mechanism, adjustments are made from above the table using a 1 1/8" socket or wrench, it attaches to a homemade router plate, and will go into almost any router table that has a removable plate. Or you can use it by itself as a stand-alone mini router table! The plans are designed for a standard 3 1/2 - 3 3/4" round, removable router motor.

Misc Router Jigs

These two jigs are easy to make, and simple to use. One is for the router table, the other is used with a hand-held router. Both will cut through-dovetail pins (the tails are cut with a band saw, scroll saw or jig saw). The hand-held router jig will also enable you to cut half-blind dovetails as well. Both jigs are demonstrated in the videos below, and there's another video about laying out your joints.

24″ Band Saw

This band saw is BIG on everything except size. It features a full 24" of throat capacity, yet it's small enough to fit on a bench. It's loaded with features that even the commercially made saws lack, like a built in sliding crosscut table, ball bearing blade guides, and a unique dust collection manifold. You can use common 104"-105" blades and the best part is, it's made almost entirely from wood!

Router Plane

Router planes are amazing tools, but they are also largely misunderstood. And that's a shame, because they are extremely useful in both a hand-tool and a power-tool workshop. Rather than cutting profiles, as a modern router does, a router plane is for cutting to depth with precise accuracy. They can be used to make the bottom of a table saw dado perfectly flat. They can fine tune a rabbet or a tenon. They are the perfect companion to many power tools with nearly unlimited uses.

My version of the router plane is easy to make from a scrap of wood and some easy to find hardware. And unlike other homemade versions, this has a micro-adjuster to set the depth and shaving thickness.

Saw Bench

Every workshop should have at least one saw bench. Not only is this an indispensable tool for sawing, it’s also a comfortable and portable workspace for chopping, boring and all sorts of other tasks. This version of the classic saw bench includes some extra features. For one thing, there’s a split that runs down the center to support both sides of the board while you rip down its length. There are holes for holdfasts to secure your work while you drill or chop sitting down. And it’s large enough to use as a step stool or an extra seat while shooting the breeze. But the best part is it can be built with some old construction lumber!
